Nice dinner while kids were at the movies near by. We arrived about 15 min early, but were seated right away. Lively crowd but not too loud. People kept using the side door and cold air would blast through the restaurant. They should try to limit use of the extra side door. Waitstaff was friendly; Good drinks (White Russian and Cosmo) but they were out of the wine we ordered. Tavern Salad was very nice, but our was missing blue cheese never had a chance to tell waitstaff as main course came out rather quickly, but fine as we were on limited time. Veal Saltimbocca was one of the best I've had. Husband Homemade Fettuccini with Vodka suave - very very good. Love the mini lemoncello shots we were given with check. One annoyance - young man bussing tables next to use would spray table with solvent and mist cam over to our table. Literally had to cover the tops of the wine glass. They should train that best practice is to spray the cloth and then wipe. Saves ton product as well! but food was very good, friendly and a good spot for quick date night. Overall, I recommend.

Really enjoyed our food and drinks. Server was pleasant and attentive. App and main courses came very quickly. I felt a little rushed.
Table was in a very awkward position, almost in a very busy part of the walk way for servers to reach kitchen.

Pasta was tough. The service was pretty good. If you want dinner don't reserve a high top. It is better to get a table.

They kicked us out @830PM before we could enjoy our dessert and after dinner drinks because a band was coming in. They wouldn’t reseat us anywhere else so we had to leave. They move two tables out of the way for the “stage” and 1 happened to be ours. It was so unwelcoming, rushed and rude after we just spent over $200 and tried to enjoy a friends birthday. I will NEVER go back!!

Excellent service. Staff helpful and pleasant. Food great. I am a pasta fan which is what I always get. I had shrimp with Marinara sauce on fettuccine. I'm a regular when in the area. Great for a Italian meal.

Love the Berry! The Tavern salad was great, and pumpkin ravs spectacular! My friend had the meatball appetizer and said they were excellent. We went on a Tuesday and the apps were half price - an added bonus! Will definitely return...

Tuesday nights are not the quietest for dinner at a place we have enjoyed before. But the food was never less than great.

Everything was quite wonderful, server was great. The only slight disappointment was the chocolate soufflé, it was more like lava cake, still taste good but should not be called soufflé. The price for that was a bit high since it is not really soufflé.

I try and try with this place but it is always the same. The food is average the service is apathetic and the greeting when you Enter is usually off puting like I’m doing then a favor. This night I didn’t sit st the bar which is usually a better experience because the bartenders tend to be nice and more focused as opposed to the staff who want to spend more time talking with each other than giving good service and earning tips. Danvers has become more Towney over time I just wish there always a place you could get good food better service and feel like you Czech go there once a month and not every day and be treated well. Berry tavern is not that place

Our party went on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant and bar were active and a little noisy. The food was very good and the portions are very (perhaps too) large. Our server was efficient and attentive but not overbearing, and we never felt rushed.
